Following on the success of Peter Aughton's book on Captain Cook's first epic voyage, 'Endeavour', this is the story of Cook's amazing second voyage of exploration.
A year and a day after James Cook arrived back on English soil having claimed Australia and New Zealand for the British crown, he set sail again on a three-year journey that still remains the greatest exploratory voyage ever undertaken in the far Southern waters of the Indian, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. His was the first ship ever to cross the Antarctic Circle, and no sailing ship since has ventured further south through the ice.
This is a colourful and exciting story of the crew and their life aboard the Resolution and the adventures that occurred whenever they landed on exotic islands and coasts such as Tahiti, Easter Island, the Tonga Islands and above all the snow, fog, treacherous ice and blizzards of Antarctica.
